My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Old soul. No games, no nonsense. Not your average. I feed stray cats, send news clippings to friends; granny style, open doors for strangers, say "excuse me", and write letters. My under things usually match, but there's a good chance there are holes in my socks. I love not camping. That kind of sums me up. I own my weirdness. No shame in my game, and occasionally quite lovely. Additionally, I'm not the type to have my phone on the table during dinner/ever, and can't really stomach it if you are. I don't like square plates.

Please, have an open heart and an open mind.

All jokes aside, definitely ready for something real, so please don't be afraid of that (happiness). I'm by no means looking to move quickly, but just want to be clear with my long term heart/mind intentions. Not looking to get married, just looking for someone to stand still with for a bit. Hopefully you are too. Seeking my very own Ron Swanson. Or Marc Maron...is that strange?

If you had a dog, it'd be great.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Lots of changes, re-evaluating and what not. Toying with starting my own business, getting psyched for picnics in the park. Freelance event management, currently working in the events department of a culinary publication. Yum!

Life is good, and full, and rich...but I'm looking to meet people outside of my regular day to day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, decorating, compartmentalizing, figuring out which way to go, public transportation, getting people together, calling bullshit, kissing, loving, doing the right thing, planning adventures, and making people laugh and making people feel really, really good. Saying, "Everything's going to be alright" and making sure that happens... fun!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"Oh, you've got green eyes
Oh, you've got blue eyes
Oh, you've got grey eyes
And I've never seen anyone quite like you before
No, I've never met anyone quite like you before"

I don't know...glasses? Smile? Sense of humor? Ever so slightly over dressed (I can't help it). General aura of awesome? I don't know, you tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Does this really matter in the end? Really? Isn't it more about how you treat other people, etc.?

Books... A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith, and God-Shaped Hole, by Tiffanie DeBartolo, The Golden Compass (no, but seriously), Gatsby, and anything by Jonathan Kozol. Have been re-reading some classics lately which feels really good. Currently enjoying "How The Other Half Lives" by Jacob Riis. It's a study of tenement life in NYC during the late 1800's. Dry, but fascinating.

Movies...Tough to narrow it down. Bronx Tale, Help!, In Brugges, Cool Hand Luke, Fierce People, Sleepers, Modern Times, Wizard of Oz, Wet Hot American Summer, La Strada (or really anything with Giulietta Masina), Hard Day's Night, Across The Universe, The Ten. Any large ensemble comedy which results in a sweet ending where they all end up at the same party/concert/shopping mall, etc (Love, Actually being a prime and superior example), and anything by the Coen brothers, John Waters, Wes Anderson, David Cronenberg, or Christopher Guest. More Michael Shannon, please!

TV is getting better though, eh? That being said, I've very excited that My Two Dad's is now available on DVD...and I'm super thrilled that Cosby Show is all over Hulu Plus.

Food...? Why? Yummy. I like that kind the best. I also quite like liverwurst, black licorice, burnt cheese and buttered popcorn Jelly Belly jelly beans (though not at the same time). Yup. Take it. Oh, and cheese is love.

I'd also be happy (and gigantic) to eat what I ate while in New Orleans, with lots of Crystal hot sauce, for the rest of my life.

I Love, love, love music. I'm pretty much listening to music from the moment I wake up until I go to sleep (can't sleep with music on though). My favorite Pandora stations is...probably a toss up between 90's NY Rap music and Incense and Peppermints. I've had a healthy, and I'd like to think charming, lifelong love affair with The Beatles. There's also quite a lot of other stuff that gets me excited. Everything from The Prodigy to Robert Johnson. Jeff Buckley's music sets my heart on fire. I also listen to ABBA and make no apologies. I used to work at a live music venue, so all I had to do was show up to work to hear great, new music. I don't have cable, or a radio...so I have to go by word of mouth for the new jams. This explains why I still listen to PM Dawn fairly regularly. Don't judge me, and I won't judge you. Got it?

RIP MCA!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music, Friends/family, Smeagol (my cat), the no-pants dance, good eats and my foam roller.

If I had to choose...but honestly, that's a ridiculous question, really.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where'd that bruise come from?

Where's Waldo?

Why do people not bat an eye when folks talk about hating cats, but when someone says they don't like dogs, they're seen as a soulless monster ? (For the record, I love both...double standards, not so much)

Deleting this profile...but then I wouldn't have ROMANTAUR to marvel at.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At the end of the day, I'm much more concerned about the 'who' than I am with the 'what'. I'm happy to be anywhere, so long as I'm in good company...and not watching football.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My name isn't Joan.

I love Madea movies. And Wendy Williams. Yup.

I love the smell of subway bread baking, but I don't ever want to eat there because that shit is gross.

I don't like Karaoke, borderline hate really. Sorry. Also Seinfeld. Sorry; I don't like whiners.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're curious, and awesome. Must be awesome.

If you sometimes feel like a weird old man, I like you already.

If D'Angelo's music is or ever has been on your "get down to sexy business" mix. Call. Me. Now.

Or if you're Australian/have a cool dog.

Also open to platonic friends, because seriously that's hard to come by these days.
